Hi, Sandra. There are furniture strippers everywhere. Ask your local antique dealers where they have it done. They will tell you that they do it themselves. Then go back a week later and bring them coffee and donuts/baguettes and they might tell you the truth.

There are some problems with this though. Don't ever have a veneered piece done. Plan to reglue chairs. The professional strippers use material that can also affect the hide glue used on old furniture. For items like this, relatively safe strippers like Citristrip are much better choices.

PLEASE DON'T YELL. It hurts my eyes.
